The Dark Souls franchise is very much a Marmite game. You either love it or you hate it. Me personally, I’ve never played it. I have, however, had to listen to my fellow enthusiast, Andrew G, drone on about his love for the series. Well, if you’re a Dark Souls fan then we have some good news for you. All three games are being re-released on Xbox One as a trilogy collection in a collector’s edition. Now, before you get too carried away, I ought to point out that it is quite pricey. There will only be 2000 copies made and to get your hands on one of them you’ll have to drop £449.99!
This is a lot of money but you do get a pretty impressive array of stuff. Here’s the official announcement which says what will be included –
